Gotham Goes Ga-Ga

NYNewsday reports on today's terrorism panic in NYC which we suspect was orchestrated to shore up the President's numbers. Meanwhile, subway riders were left holding the bag.

The NYPD first learned of the potential threat to the city's subway system on Monday. At the time, however, the decision was made not to go public with the news[stifled laugh].

A federal source, however, said officials learned of the threat following a U.S. military-CIA raid on an al-Ansar safe house in or near Bagdad earlier this week. [guffaw]

A Homeland Security Department spokesman said "the intelligence community has concluded the information to be of doubtful credibility". [chortle]

Don't fart on the subway or the killer sniffer dogs will rip your buttocks off.
